Not what we expected in our room

We arrived at the Colonial resort 19 Dec 930pm as book there but full so front counter girl Giselle G. put us on a second floor building in the Kantenah Resort. This we did not appreciate as booked 9 months previously and had been 8 years ago in this resort and wanted a 5* up grade but we found our way there again! Why get over booked? We were promised the next day to go to Colonial Resort. Our room was two stories no elevators at this resort at all! We are seniors over 70yrs and after a 12 hr trip did not wish to carry our luggage up these stairs. We could not get hot water just barley warm and difficulty using shower water handle as loose. We went to Kantenah buffet but was just closing and most burners for any hot food no existent. While we were in this room the power went off three times for approx. 10 min. This we remembers previous visit, why? Total power went out four times in two days waiting for other room. This is a problem with this resort power outages, why? Christmas lights, N.Y.s? We did not get hot water also in the am but yes a little hotter. This tourist service of putting someone in another resort because of ?? really should not happen. Stayed packed till 330 next day but not enjoying the grounds or beach yet! Touring this resort in a few days found it very full, no pool seating but families, kids, in water park were having a nice time and clean. The beach was rocky and lots of sea weed but a one man tractor would do a once a while scoop taking also lots of beach sand. Waves yes, water not very clean here tried snorkeling but not clear enough and only just a very few fish.This was our 18th resort and returned and like the Mayan area. Softsand.

Such a great atmosphere and so relaxing.

Everything about this resort was amazing. 10 out of 10 would go back again. The spa was amazing we did the 80 minute massage and spent the rest of the day swimming in the therapy pools and just relaxing.

Constant solicitation, harassment, attitudes

Sitting on the palladium private beach being constantly harassed and solicited by people trying to sell and take pictures Cannot relax. Started just saying no when they come up. Said no to photographer and he gave me a lecture on being courteous and how I should have told him good morning If you want to be harassed and have people get attitudes and give you lectures when you say no to constant solicitation when your trying to relax on the beach come here

Vacation of a lifetime

This was truly a delight. From the time we arrived there was someone to take care of our every need. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. The resort is immaculately cared for and the beaches are breathtaking. We enjoyed getting to visit all of the restaurants while we were there. You need 10 days!

Great Week!

We stayed at the Kantehah resort from Dec 23th-30th. The GP has so much to do. The highlight for us was the live music and beach parties, as well as the evening shows. The pools were amazing. Our kids loved going to the "warm" pool at the end of the day or if it was a little cooler out. The beach is nice but you have to find the right spots to swim as there are a number of areas that are quite rocky. Before we went we read that seaweed was an issue, but the resort does a pretty good job of cleaning it up daily. It was not an issue for us. The rooms are a bit dated, but they were clean and comfortable. We decided to give a 4 instead of a 5 because the food was slightly above average. The buffet was the same food each night and if you went for a later supper we found at times some dishes were cold. The food at the a la carte restaurants was amazing. Ribs and More, and Portofino were our favourite. If we could do it over again we would skip the buffet each night and go right to the restaurants. We were very pleased with the staff. They all were very professional and accommodating. We has a minor issue with the people in our group not being in the same buildings at check in and they took care of it right away for us. A big shout out to Victor and Alfredo at the swim up bar. These guys were great.
